Take a Chance

Are you wanting to pursue a dream? Or change your lifestyle in some way?
"There's no chance unless you take one!" (It's a line from a theme show of a TV show my girls like to watch...but good, no?)

You have no chance in getting what you're after unless you are willing ot take a chance, to risk something, to make a sacrifice, or to experience a little discomfort.

What are you willing to give in order to get what you want? What's your plan?

Someone once said, "A dream without a plan remains a dream."

Determine what you really want. What really gives you joy? Then make a plan to get it, and decide what you are willing to give for it. Never think or speak negatively about it; your words are powerful. Stay focused. Pray and believe.

Take a chance!

While attending a company seminar some years ago I heard a speaker say "If you have more than one goal, you don't have a goal."

I would ammend that quote by saying that you should only take on one big goal AT A TIME.

Once you have accomplished one, set another!

In our Western Culture, I believe that our goals have become more wants than needs. There is nothing wrong in pursuing a goal, however we need to be careful, sometimes we get what we go after. I think your next to last sentence is the best advice you give, that way we bring God into the picture and not just ourselves.

Is it so wrong to dream of being mowed down by three jealous husbands in their thirties as I run for my fully chromed out Fat Boy? -----OK OK, maybe thats a bit much. How bout a Wide Glide with a springer front end.
